Granola everyone!

So I know there's already another granola recipe in this blog but i thought this would be another option just in case you are looking for new ideas.

The granola made with this recipe has a very interesting quality: it is very crisp!
And along with a glass of soy milk, almond milk and some fruit (especially apple and apricot) is transformed into a full breakfast and otherwise quite tasty. Also, you could eat it with some plain yogurt

  • 2 cups wheat germ
  • Thick 6 cups oats (organic if possible)
  • ½ cup chopped almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds
  • ½ cup shredded coconut (optional)
  • ¼ cup quinoa (optional)
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1 ½ cup honey or maple syrup
  • ¼ cup sunflower oil (can also use vegetable oil)
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • Zest of two lemons
  • Dry fruits to taste
  1. Combine all the dry ingredients, blending the liquid ingredients separately (only if you have honey that is not very liquid, otherwise collect the liquid in a bowl and mix well) then add to dry ingredients slowly and stir with a spatula .
  2. Mix until a homogeneous result. Spread the mixed ingredients in a rectangular baking sheet pan. Bake in moderate oven (350F to 375F) for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Cool and add raisins or any dried fruit you wish.
  3. As you can see is quite simple, cheap and otherwise healthy and more reliable than the granola we get many times at the grocery store.
